Admissions in the UW System

The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents approved a revised freshman admissions policy for UW campuses at its February meeting.

The policy states that academic achievements are the most important factors in admissions decisions. It preserves long-standing, minimum academic requirements, and consolidates several previous UW System admissions policies, some of which were first approved more than 30 years ago. Under the policy, UW campuses are to admit students who are likely to succeed at the university, and who will both benefit from and contribute to the educational environment.

All public comments submitted by Feb. 7 were shared with the Regents prior to their February meeting.

Here you can review the approved admissions policy, read answers to frequently asked questions, and watch the videoconference of the statewide public forum held Jan. 29. To watch a webcast of the February Regents meeting and read same-day news summaries, visit the Board of Regents meeting webpage.
